Boxing with Shaunette Renée Wilson

The actress on being a morning and night person

It’s an exciting time for Shaunette Renée Wilson. The actress, who stars as Dr. Mina Okafor on FOX’s The Resident, had a recurring role on HBO’s Billions and a part in 2018’s Black Panther—all since graduating from the Yale School of Drama in 2016.

A proud New York City native, Wilson has been on-the-go more than usual lately, traveling between her hometown and Atlanta, where The Resident shoots. Furthermore caught up with her during one of the frequent boxing sessions she uses to center and ground herself amidst a packed schedule. She shared her insights on staying up late, waking up early, and what makes her feel powerful.
